Huge win for car owners! All TSBs to be made public. The Center for Auto Safety just made the NHTSA (US Government) make public the full text of all TSBs from now on. They are the same organization that has petitioned the NHTSA & filed lawsuits to protect car owners over exploding gas tanks & other major safety issues. Whenever you drive in your car, you are safer thanks in part to a lot of work over the years by this small but very effective consumer advocacy group.

Please take a moment & say thank you by donating $5 or whatever you can to the Center for Auto Safety.

12 trips to dealership, 70 days in shop, 5 dealerships, 3 states. The car cannot accelerate to safe speeds from a complete stop. Our ramps are metered and the car just won't go, have to have the car shimmy before it will go and the foot all the way down to the floor. GM states that this is normal. It's worse when the ac or heater was on, GM recommendation is to not drive with ac or heater on as it makes the car seem like it's under a heavy load. Also smell emits from vent that is making people sick. Took to fire station as the symptoms present like carbon monoxide. Dealerships have confirmed it's some sort of chemical but they don't know what it is. Doesn't matter if car is being driven or running while sitting still. Fire department said no co so now looking at having it tested at a air quality lab.

Traction control light came on after starting car which the weather wasn't a factor at all, dry warm day, but the transmission gear did not. Car wouldn't move. Turned car off and restarted, got gear notification back but the transmission wouldn't go in gear. Car has 8,000 miles on it. Finally car moved but wouldn't go past 10 mph. Onstar states 3 different codes popped up and to take car in within 7 days. Had to have car towed because the car wouldn't go into gear at all. Called Chevy customer service and they said this is the first time they have heard of this happening and the open recall is for rough shifting which I had an apt set up for Feb. 22, 2016 to get the open recall fixed. Car was not able to be driven and was towed to dealership. Not for what my car is doing. After car moved, the check engine light finally came on but has a different code than the previous two codes. Onstar said that code has to do with the transmission and emissions. A new car shouldn't have these kind of issues especially 6 months of buying the vehicle new.
